Catalogue of quality standards
The catalogue of quality standards for the weltwärts programme is a framework document that primarily describes the requirements the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has set for the German-based implementing organisations in the weltwärts pro-gramme’s North-South and South-North components. It was drawn up jointly by representatives of civil society and government bodies. It provides the basis for external certification of the Ger-man-based implementing organisations by independent bodies. All stakeholders in the programme acknowledge the catalogue of quality requirements as the binding framework for their participation in the programme.
